So I have the 500 running with a 75 gallon sump and bio tower half full with pot scrubbers.  1000 pot scrubbers and only half full...haha.  Anyways....I am off to pick up the fish for this little experiment.  Current it has the RT cat and a 10" jag in there...and they are doing well.  Although the jag is a douche.  I have a couple cycled tanks for the new fish to hang out in while I get this thing all cycled and done.  No worries for the tanks current fish....I have cycled filters I am adding to the tank so I am not worried about them.

 

New cohab on the way boys...I will let you know once I get the tank set up and add the fish.

Bah!!!!!!!!!

 

Fish delayed in Phoenix.  I get to pick them up at 11:30...lol.  Going to be a late night.  Good thing we have warmed up here so they will hopefully be fine.

 

Hey Wayne...I have had this setup for years...just never got around to setting it up.  I kind of went through a period where I really didnt want fish...after I lost my geryi tank and then my rhom died.  Tank is 6x4x3.  Sump is running at about 4800 gph.  I will update you guys when I get the fish in and they make sure they are all healthy.

^^^^^^GG, how do they ship a million neons? Are they all in individual bags?
If nobody came back from the future to stop you, it wasn't that bad of a decision.

Right now I have stocked it with a few geryi and a sanchezi.  Had the 18" RTC in there with them but he was getting picked on and he ate one of the sanchezi so I took him out.  Also have some convicts and a bunch of tiny tetras and danios.  I have 3 dentics that will be added once I get them feeding regularly.  Im still trying to get a good mix of food for them.  Once I add the dentics I am going to look for some nattereri in the same general size to condition and add.  I will be adding different species as I see ones I think might work.

As of last night all were doing well. 

 

So that is the plan.

OH...and I returned the Jag...dude was just a prick.  Although I might get him again if he is still there...and put him in a 100 by himself.
